In brief: ~10 %

There are some umpredicable chances in the life of any woman that the ovulation may happen closer to the menstrual period ( short preovulatory phase) and the fértile cervical mucus is not possible to observe because it is mixed with blood from the menstruacion.
Statistically speaking during menstruation " most of the time" fertility is low, but never 100% infertile.
